Colony alludes to the seafarious voyage that the British took to travel to the East Indies for trade and commerce in the late eighteenth century. An essence of urban living, the elegant British-colonial charm of the restaurant is characterised by an eclectic mix of vintage and bespoke furniture featuring tartan and houndstooth prints, alongside touches of modernity, while old maps, photographs and postcards adorn the walls and partitions, evoking the nostalgia of a bygone era.

Eight different conservatory kitchens, helmed by ‘live’ culinary showmanship, detail a food narrative of the culinary journey and heritage that transformed Singapore, which gave its cuisine, a sense of identity. Incorporating various cooking techniques, each ‘live’ kitchen will showcase the best of Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, Malaysian, Western and local dishes, bringing diners on a culinary journey through Singapore’s heritage cuisines.

In the afternoons, entertain family and friends over a traditional British-style three-tier afternoon tea set in Colony, a treat that English high society similarly enjoyed back in the early 19th century. At Colony, the afternoon tea experience is elevated with the addition of a flute of Louis Roederer Champagne served from a magnum.

Wind down the evenings by opting to enjoy a personalised table-side experience where Colony’s resident mixologist will handcraft specialty cocktails# such as “Long Journey”, “Bengal Brew” and “Governor’s Invitation”, concocted to mirror the passage taken from Great Britain to the East Indies.
